I really want my Bl on right now but it might make my tires look a little small.

haha, umm buddy, your tires look a little small right now. Don't get me wrong your truck still looks. But in my opinion, I wouldn't consider lifting the truck an extra 3" with those size tires.

Hey Jared, if your interested in buying tires let me know what size and brand and I'll see if I can get you a deal. I bought my tires for $85 each (new) when most places were asking around $150.

Sean these things are cake to take off/put on. When we installed my L/T the truck was torn apart in about a half hour.

Alright, the guy I talk to is out for the day, so I'll find out saturday or monday. And just FYI, tirepackage lists your tire for $30 more each ($169) than it lists my 32x11x15's so based on that I would expect my price to be about $100 each

I decided against the bodylift after some hard thinking. I would have to remake my brackets for my bar and I dont really want my frame showing so Im gonna pass.

xterrains are insanely price, I'm not sure if anything can happen in regards to pricing on those. But what hat kind of mudders are you looking at?

Basically, I don't want to exhaust my guy, so give me the specific tire your looking at and I'll get you a price.
